Sinful Colors - Hot Chilli

Okay, I've been looking for swatches of this since I bought it sometime this week and I cannot find ANY. So I swatches it myself. It's such a beautiful fall color and it represents the season so well. It's a rich tomato red with glitter that ranges from yellow to orange to green - just like the changing leaves. So it's a wonderful fall color! I guess it's part of the Sinful Colors new fall collection? I didn't get a picture of the display but it did have some of their original line colors like Nirvana and Green Ocean, so some of these definitely aren't new. Anyway, the name is also seasonally appropriate. "Hot Chilli." Mmmm a nice bowl of spicy hot chilli sounds delicious.

 Application only took two coats. I don't know why, but this is the only color out of the collection to feature the silver top instead of a black one. Anyone know why this is? Does it just mean it's limited edition?

Catching Fire

The 2nd movie of the Hunger Games series is releasing soon and I wanted to do some nails to go along with it! I am aware that CoverGirl just released some hunger games nail art decals but my local walmart is selling them in a pack along with a mini glosstini varnish, and I just want the decals. But I'm not spending $8.00 on a polish I might not even use. So instead of hunting down the decals, I figured I could just make my own. The flames I did are painted directly on the nail, I did not use the ziploc bag technique and I have not even tried that yet.

Base color is China Glaze Ruby Pumps and the gold is Sally Hansen Golden-I. Are you a hunger games fan?

China Glaze - Don't Make Me Wine

Yet another purple to my collection! More of a red-violet though. This color is so rich and I only needed two coats to get full coverage. It has the slightest bit of shimmer to it. Tongue and Chic also has the same formula as this one and Strike Up A Cosmo is more of a foil finish.

Opal for October

I'm late posting this, but that's okay! My birthstone is the lovely opal and I wanted to recreate the design on my nails. How did it turn out? I say for a first attempt is was okay.

My only complaint is that the flakies are so hard to photograph! Hopefully you can see the iridescent rainbow shimmer to it.
Colors used are China Glaze's Rainbow as the base and Color Club's Snow Flakes as the flakies.
